Default Finals coming up AGAIN

So, I have been around this forum for awhile now, and so this will be my second round of finals coming up......They actually don't start for a couple of weeks, but I could use some good thoughts and prayers now.

If you remember, last time my cyatic nerve flared and I ended up on vicodin and bed rest for the whole of my finals. This greatly effected my gpa....and I mean greatly. I would really like to be healthy and slam these finals out.

On another note, I registered for my second to last semester today and am taking some VERY interesting classes---I have taped out all the family law classes now, so I had to branch out. My second greatest love is constitutional law/civil rights. So I had this idea of writing my final 3rd year paper on making being a single parent a protected class that cannot be discriminated against. Still flushing this one out a bit, but I will let you all know [I know you will be hanging out waiting for this most interesting topic]. But I will be taking Refugee Law, Civil Rights Litigation, Race and the Law, Oregon Criminal Procedure, State Constitutional Law, and Comparitive Constitutional Law..............see where I am going with that one?

AND YAHOO I JUST GOT MY COURT CERTIFICATION.........What does this mean----In May I will walk into court for the first time and be able to walk across the bar and represent the state on perliminary issues and trials without parents. I am so stoked. It is one more step or milestone I was not sure I would ever, ever reach.

So anyway, I know that I have not been on as much, but I am preparing to try and not lose my mind over the next couple of months.

Congrats on the certification!

It's hard to believe it is finals time again! I'll send prayers and good thoughts your way, but I know you will slam them! Heck if you can come out ok on bed rest and vicodin, this will be a piece of cake!

Are you still working out? That can be a great stress reliever and confidence builder! We are rooting for you! All of us lawyer, court system bashing folks want another good lawyer with a good heart out there!!!

You are an awesome mom, sister, aunt, and a smart and enthusiastic attny in training. You will be a great one!

Congrats and good luck all at the same time!!!

I'm so jealous... I wish I was stressed about finals right now! I'd be a career student if it would pay all the bills (and if they'd let me back in ... ) !!

Thank you for the compliment!

And yes, I am still working out. Trying to step it up and switch things around right now........I have not been losing weight, but I see muscle definition, so that's good. And I decided to run a half-marathon in June in Seattle.......Up to 7 miles right now........

I've missed you, but you've been on some and been giving great advice as usual.
GOOD luck on your finals. You don't need luck, you ROCK all on your own.
